My name is Ian Russell. I was born in the Caribbean and my parents along with my brothers and sisters immigrated to Canada, where I spent most of my youth, at the age of 18 I meet my wife to be and have
been married to her for the past 32 years. I have a son and daughter and 2 grand children from my son and 2 grand child from my daughter twins to say the least, boy time has flown by fast.
For over ten years I trained and coached amateur and professional fighters, As an amateur coach I was blessed to have been close friends and work with Arnie Boehm as his assistant coach and in the pro circuit I worked as a corner man and coach for Fitz Vanderpool and Anthony Russell.
I performed my duties with the likes of Roger Mayweather, Elvis Grant Phillips and Joe Montoya and met many big name fighters Lennox Lewis, Bernard Hopkins, Floyd Mayweather, and Laila Ali to name a few. I am the type of person that never says, I always wanted to do that. My philosophy is if there is an activity or hobby that you feel you would like to do, then do it you only live once. I did sky diving, boxing, kick boxing, got my black belt in karate and Tie Kwon Do I competed in The Canadian black belt championships in which I came in 2nd place in sparring. My hobby's are Motorcycle riding working on my restoration project 1990 dodge ram-charger, Hiking and I love being an amateur Astronomer
I also go to Comicon and Fan Expo for fun with my family at least I can say I am a big Science fiction fan. Now at my age I have decided to try something new so I resigned from my work as an automotive technician and went back to School to learn web design and to create mobile apps. Yes it could be a huge risk but
sometimes in life change is good.
